TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): If you've been awake at any point in the last 50 years, you know that American colleges are basically pretty liberal. But in the past five years or so, campuses seem to have been hit by a fever they haven't experienced since the 1960s. Instead of focusing on professional skills or the sweet treats of scholarship, millions of students and professors have made far left politics their only reason for being at school.
The result is this: everybody gets a safe space except white men. They are hated and despised. What is this about, exactly? Scott Greer is the author of a new book that considers it, it's called No Campus For White Men, and he joins us in the studio. Scott, thanks for coming on.
SCOTT GREER: Thanks for having me on, Tucker.
CARLSON: So the hysteria level is rising, that's not my imagination. I went to college at one point. It wasn't like this.
CARLSON: There's so many ironies in all this, I guess the first one you sort of noted, everyone in college is privileged by definition. They're not working for a living. They're learning, which was considered a privilege for like a thousand years.
